Molecular Clocks
a model that uses DNA comparisons to estimate the length of time that two species have been evolving.
evolutionary classification
strategy of grouping organisms together based on their evolutikonary history
Cladograms
diagram that shows the evolutionary relationships amoung a group of organisms

Domain Bacteria
unicellular and prokaryotic cells have thick rigid cell walls, surrounding a cell membrane; made of peptidoglycan.
contains the kingdom eubacteria
Domain Arachaea
unicellular and prokaryotic members, live in extreme envvironments; valcanic hot springss, birine pools, and black organic mud. cell wall lack peptidoglycan andd their cell membrances contain unusual lipids the aren't found in otheer organisms.have thick rigid cell walls.
archaebacteria
kingdom of unicellular whose cell walls do no contain peptigoddlycan.
Domain Eukarya
consists of all organisms that have a nucleaus.
organized into four groups
Groups of Eukarya
protista
fungi
plantae
animalia
Protista
kingdo composed of eikaryotes that arte not clasified as plants, animals, or fungi. most are single celled but some are multi some are photsymthetic and others are hetorotrophic.
Fungi
hetorotrophs, most are multi cell. some are unic cell.
includes mushrooms and yeasts
Plantae
multi cell. photosyumthetic autotrophs, nonmitle-cannot move from place to place, cell walls contain not cellulose, incldues cone bvearing and flowering palnts, mosss and ferns.
Animalia
multi cell. heteroptrophic, do not have cell walls,
